AllMusic Review by

This Fania compilation of Willie Colón material from the early '70s through the early '80s makes little sense, except as a way for serious fans to pick up a few odds and ends from his catalog. It certainly isn't the best of his fruitful time with Fania; only "Che Che Cole" and "Todo Tiene Su Final" (or perhaps another of the Hector Lavoe vocals) could qualify for a greatest-hits volume. The rest of the 12 performances are good to great cuts from lukewarm albums such as Fantasmas, Solo, and Tiempo Para Matar.
